Firewood Guy,
The sunken plug head like that was used up thru 1925. The RR1 is commonly believed to signify the River Rouge plant. Since production was switched here in 1921, I would say the head is from 1921 thru 1925. It will physically bolt on the block from 1917 thru 1952, but water passages will only line up correctly from 1917 thru early 1927. Around s/n 662,000 the water passages around the valves changed an the hole in the head surface also changed.
And Yes, spark plugs in this head have 1/2” pipe thread.
-Steve
